    Week of October 27– 31, 2014 

    I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. I want to take a moment and thank each of you for the work you are doing to make a difference in our school. When I walk through classrooms, I notice how hard to you are working and it is beginning to show. We have very busy week ahead as we approach mid-semester exams and the completion of Term 1. I want and expect excellence out of each of you. Let’s work together to make the final days of this term outstanding. Here are a few items for the week ahead!

    1. Sachem Shout-Out:
      • CONGRATULATIONS to the MHS Football Team for winning the Fisher Division of the Patriot League at the most exciting game against Hanover last Friday evening. It was so great to see Tribe Nation in full effect! Let the playoffs begin!

    1.  Halloween Fun Fest ~ Wednesday, October 29th
      • The Student Council will be hosting their annual Halloween Fun Fest for the children of Middleborough. The event will take place in the MHS Cafeteria on Wednesday, October 29th at 6:00pm. All members of the student council are to provide candy for this event. Please drop off the bags of candy to my office by Wednesday morning! Also, any member of the council looking to be a part of the event needs to see Brooke Downey, Hayden Bagnell-Pettine, Mike Zahar and Stephanie Beaumont. 
    1. Mid-Term Examinations are Quickly Approaching:
      • The mid-term examination period will take place on October 30-31. This means the following:

                                           i.    Term 1 is coming to a close and you need to be sure that you are completing the term strong! Do you have anything missing? Have you completed everything that is expected? Have you stayed for extra help?

                                          ii.    Mid-Terms exams are coming! Please be sure to do the following now: Organize your notebook and book bag. Go through all of your papers and be sure that everything is accounted for. The more organized you are the better your preparation for your exams will be. 

      • I want excellence for each of you on these exams! Make me proud, Middleboro!
    1.  Cocoa Cram ~ Prepare for your Mid-Semester Exams ~ October 27 & 28:
